Ash & Elm took over the space which was formerly occupied by Olive Tree in the InterContinental Singapore. I think they are also the restaurant to provide breakfast for hotel’s guests.
The place undergone massive renovation and now presented a different ambience compared to the former restaurant. My first impression of Ash & Elm was the dark wood tones used, which is supposed to make the place looked posh & grand. But the ambient lighting was a tad too dim for my liking.
We had the Line-caught yellowfin tuna steak a la basquaise and Rib-Eye Steak 180-day grain-fed Australian black angus, marbling score 2.
The tuna was well-seared served with a rich tomato-based gravy. The steak was thick and juicy but what impressed me was the ultra juicy tomatoes that pops in your mouth.
Ended our meal with a dessert meant for sharing – Chocolate-hazelnut pizza Chocolate Brioche, Dark, Milk and White Chocolate, Praline, marshmallow with Cocoa Granite and White Chocolate Ice Cream. A sweet treat for chocolate lovers!
Although we had a nice meal, with good service, the total bill was a tad pricey for a casual meal. If we were to celebrate special occassions, we would rather pay a little bit more and have a fine dining meal. So I think the place is still positioned more for hotel guests who wants to grab a bite without travelling out.
